Thermo Scientific Konelab PRIME 60


Konelab PRIME 60

Thermo Scientific* Konelab PRIME 60 Clinical Chemistry Analyzer is an ideal system for medium-sized laboratories as a stand-alone instrument or as a part of a high-capacity workcell for routine and specialty testing. 
The Thermo Scientific Konelab PRIME 60 offers an expanding scope of assay test parameters with a view to future applications. The highly-developed PRIME 60 is an integrated system for routine clinical chemistry tests, electrolytes and special chemistries, including specific proteins, TDM and DoA tests. The proven, unique low-volume multicell cuvette technology has been further developed to meet the demands of the high throughput system. The 12-cell cuvettes require reaction volumes of only 120 to 150µL, awarding the user with low running costs.

Continuous access to reagents without interrupting test processing. On-board 45 pos. in the refrigerated reagent compartment. Automated identification by integrated barcode reader. Real time reagent status clearly displayed. Up to four reagent additions/test possible. 
Discrete disposable 12-cell cuvette. Continuous access to cuvettes without interrupting test processing. On-board capacity of 2100 measurement cells — 175 multicell cuvettes with 12 reaction cells, typ. up to 4 hours walk-away time. 
Automatic sample pre-dilution. Automatic post-dilution with both high and low secondary dilution ratios. Ability to add the value of manual pre-dilution for the result calculation. 
Linear, non-linear or bias calibration. Method-dependent use of individual calibrators or automatically diluted series from a stock calibrator. Memory for 99 different calibrators. 
Quality Control:  
Real time QC with multiple, user-definable Westgard rules. Programmable control interval. QC chart printouts, daily and cumulative reports. Memory for 99 different controls. 
Measurement Method:  
Colorimetric and turbidimetric principles. Kinetic and end-point modes. Spectral range: 340 – 800 nm. 
Water Consumption:  
Water consumption typ. <2L/h. Available on-board, no external connections required.  
ISE Measurement in the model 60i:  
Direct potentiometry principle. Electrodes for Na+, K+ and Cl-. Li+, Ca2+ and pH upon request.
